Although I would LOVE a reusable stim. I don't think it's a wise idea.
It'll be fine you'll come up with a new way to make credits. Selling medpacs is the least profitable thing you could be doing anyway. The time spent looking for a buyer would finish a whole daily area and you'll have mroe creds by the end of that...

i don't have anything in particular, but there are some things i would like bioware to know.
first, no titles, pets, or dyes, they are useless other than looks. second, all of the 55 gear looks just so hideous, i also want to be able to use my own adaptive gear, so no armor. third, if you do happen to give out some cool color crystal make sure i can get more from the collections tab, and please give all of the other spec variants besides expertise, there are more things than PVP that other people like to do. forth, i would like some hyper-powerful ranked pvp mods. an addition of ranked wz commendation hilts, barrels, and armors would be nice. i don't want to have to buy some hideous pvp armor or weapon, then spend major creds to take it out myslef. fifth, if your going to do some mount, which by all means i encourage, please don't add lots of unnecessary fins or protrusions and metal tumors on it, i like things practical but still nice looking. a walker would be nice, and i've heard people want it.

I'm imagining a "season vendor" with a few basic rewards and then the cool ones from current and previous seasons. So instead of earning the rewards directly we're getting tokens sent to us, based on our tier. Everyone who gets tokens can choose to spend them on the basic rewards instead of the new seasonal ones or simply save them until the next season. The cool stuff such as season mounts and whatnot will also require the rating so a person won't be able to save the few comms they have from the lowest tier a couple of seasons and then buy the highest tier's mount. The pro with allowing people to buy old stuff is that new players will have something to aim for even before the new season rewards have been announced. The highest tier will get enough tokens every season to buy all the new seasonal rewards.

A good start would be to add 20 basic rewards + the season 1 rewards to the vendor and then add the season 2 rewards and perhaps a couple of basic rewards every season.
that is a very clever idea, and if this currency could be traded it could really boost trade. although i disagree with the person you were replying to about expertise crystals. expertise is only good in pvp and i would like to be able to do anything i want in the game. i also think you should be able to get infinite in the collections tab. i think these tokens should only be given at the end of a season, no other option. that would give them near infinite value and make people think before selling them to other players. if they could be obtained in any other way im sure players would do that, getting a spot on the leaderboards is hard work. i also think that they should be awarded to everyone, in varying quantities. some people might suck but really want to improve and they should get a chance. at lower levels i hated arenas because id get ganged up on and shot down in a heart beat and not get any medals, making the experience completely useless. this is especially bad for non-subs, who get only 5 wz a week. now with a single unnatural preservation i am guaranteed to get one, but yeah...

The idea of the ranked pvp vendor is a great one but I can see people would get annoyed at it. At the end of the day we're balancing how to set unique rewards amongst a large population. I love the idea of being able to earn a girrada rancor but I recognise it is a special reward for those who met the prerequisites in season 1 and allowing it out to others lessens the value of the original achievement. I know 1500+ will still be 'allstars' so they still have a title to signify their end of s1 ranking but if we change the system people would have had the expectation that this was a one off.

The idea of a scalable mount that goes to all participants also lessens the uniqueness of the reward, and I don't think everyone should get a mount just for participating in ranked.

That said we need a way to get more people to participate - hopefully the combination of knowing there are good rewards at the end of s2, a daily / weekly ranked quest (could the rewards of completing the daily be a +10 to your rating rather than rwz comms?) and a shorter season will promote better participation.

Again, I'd just say I think we should keep the top 96 as only cosmetic rewards ie titles because I'd hate to see significant development effort applied to such a tiny proportion of the playerbase. Spend your time on top bracket rewards instead which while account for only approx 5% of the pop this is much higher than 96 players - and it will serve as a better incentive for the larger community.

How about a sidecar mount that's piloted by a clone of the last person you solo killed in a wz?

How about the idea that the speaker in thr beginning of the matches of arenas and huttball is referering to any of the top 3players of the season.

For instance the place 2 ranked gunslinger enters an arena and the speaker says instead of the ususal boring two sentences something like: "Today one of the smoking gun champions is amongs us, can the underdogs withstand his firepower? We will see in the slaughter to come"

Or:
Two of the top 3ranked players are facing of in the teams opposing. Speaker announcment: "Look at this! Two champions and their team are facing of today. Who will dominate?"

That would make me pay attention to the announcment once again and it would feel much more interactive.

For the top reward for second season why not give out a special set of Legacy mainhands with their own unique effects and appearance.

The box would include, 2 sabers, 1 double saber, 2 pistols, one rifle, one sniper and an auto-cannon.

Lowest Reward: A mini Baron Deathmark pet - like a hologram or something - that gets angry when you kick the ball.

Middle Reward: The ability to change the appearance of one of your combat abilities so that it acts in the same way but just looks different. E.g. the ability to make force push look like the lightsaber knockback swing which npcs have.

Highest Reward: New unique armor and weapon for their respective class which isn't a reskin and is completely new in design

I've got it. For part of the top prize, a special buff and effect. When they enter a warzone it announces to everyone that a champion has entered the fight and any team members within 15 meters of him in the warzone receives a special buff that grants +5 defense/offense. This would truly show the greatness of a champion.

This buff would only last for the season and then the top champions of the next season would gain the buff.
